Keeping your offices safe and secure should be a priority for any business manager or owner. Having a way to keep unauthorized people out while easily letting employees in can be the best way to maintain security at all times. If you are looking for an easy way to regulate the traffic in your office, commercial card access systems are a great tool to use. With access cards, employees move to and from the office at will while visitors are only allowed to enter the office with remote access. There are a number of reasons why these systems work well for offices.
Difficulty of Duplication
One of the main security benefits of using a system with card access is that the cards for entrance into the office are often difficult to duplicate. While duplication or manipulation of card information can still occur if someone has detailed tech knowledge, it is far less likely to occur than if you issue standard keys to employees. This will reduce the number of people that have access to your office, and you will know exactly who is entering on a daily basis.
Easy to Add and Remove User Access
Traditional keys can be lost and there’s no telling who can pick them up and instantly have access to your office. With key cards, you are in control of who has access to your offices. Adding a user is easy by simply adding information to their card to give them access to one or more access points. This is a good system for offices that provide employees with different levels of clearance to enter and exit specific areas. If a key card is lost, an employee can report it and that card can be denied access to open the office door.
These systems also have remote access buttons that can be installed inside the office for access to visitors. Only when the person working the remote access button confirms the identity of the visitor(s), that person can then allow them to enter the office without a key card.
Maintaining Complete Records
If a record of who enters or exits your office is needed for security or control purposes, using card access instead of traditional key locks can help you keep track of door traffic. The software that comes with your system will be able to read and record each time a specific card issued to an employee is used to enter or exit the office. If you need the record for a certain day, the software is able to search for the information you want.
